Party Time - Please Read Carefully - All the way through!

Oh how excited we are here at Dottie's World!!! I feel like I'm going to burst! This month marks Dottie's Worlds first birthday! I can hardly believe a whole year has past already, but then again when I think of everything that has happened in that time and all the download collections we've seen released you would think it had been longer.

We feel that Dottie's World is entering a whole new phase so we've decided to have a Dottie's World re-launch to celebrate our first birthday and to mark the beginning of this exciting new phase.

To celebrate in style we'll be having a whole new look and set up. To enable this to run smoothly we need to close for two days this Friday.
We will reopen on Sunday 17th May - That's when the celebrations begin!!!!!!

We are having a week long party with lots of party games and PRIZES !!!!!Now for the candy; Every good party has to have invitations, we need you to display our invitation IN A BLOG POST and WRITE about our party, please link directly to this post

If you; 1. Display the invitation 2. Link to this post and 3. Write about our party.........

You could be one of the people who will receive some of this amazing candy by Charmed Cards and Crafts!

If you want to show the candy on your blog too then here is a picture of everything together:
PLEASE NOTE ; some of the stash you see here will be given as prizes for our party games.

The winner will be chosen at random and announced on the day our birthday month finishes - 31st May

CRAFT BLOG ENTRANTS ONLY PLEASE - no CANDY ONLY blogs will be considered.

Here at Charmed Cards and Crafts we have only gone and given you even more stash! Take a look...

Happy 1st Birthday!! I think the re-design looks fantabby... what a way to celebrate!!

Thanks to all the team for inspiration over the last year, to Karen when I broke my PC who helped me retrieve my downloads and to poor Louise who has had to help me learn how to download images/ set up a blog/ give me photography advice and finally calm me down when I thought I had been banned when you closed for the re-design!!! He he he!

You are such a lovely bunch here and I always love seeing your fabulous creations...

Many happy returns and let the party fun begin!
